Sir David Attenborough speaks over striking footage of wildlife from all corners of the globe in the first extended trailer for new Netflix series Our Planet.

Netflix has also announced that the series will feature local narrators in 10 languages, including actresses Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek, who will narrate for Spain and Latin America respectively.

Spanish actress Cruz said: “Being a part of Netflix’s Our Planet is an incredible honour. The series is spectacularly beautiful and the message of conservation could not be more timely or important.

“I feel very close to everything Our Planet stands for and I’m proud to bring such a powerful piece of work to my home country and audiences around the world.”

Hayek said: “Our Planet transcends borders to deliver an inspiring message of wonder, respect and care for our natural world.”

The film star said she is “honoured” to help bring the series to those in her home country of Mexico, and to a Spanish-language audience across Latin America and the rest of the world.
